Today we unveiled the road that brings from olfactory language to olfactory psychology.
Olfactory language enables you to write stories with smells, olfactory psychology gives you an understanding of what stories should be narrated to different people and different publics.
In the afternoon the students were finally let loose, after 5 days, to compose a perfume of their invention all by themselves. A “fantasy perfume”. We then bottled it.
The lady who owns the perfumery shop in Riccione visited us and smelled the 10 different versions of her fragrance that were executed yesterday by the students.
She selected 2 fragrances from the ten.
Her visit was a didactical highlight. She is a lady whose work is to choose the perfumes that she will sell to her customers. She examined the fragrances that the students made on the fifth day of course and evaluated them to be of a quality level that could be her own signature scent for her exclusive niche perfumery.
What more do my students need as a proof that they are now perfumers?
Real perfumes made for real people with real essences, and now we have a real customer.
Dear students, we shall now make a competition. I shall compose her perfume and present her 3 proposals, my own and the 2 she selected. They will be just numbered and she will not know which is mine. Let us see which perfume she will choose.
Bottling our perfumes, beautiful outside and beautiful inside.
